Most common injuries on cruise ships> Contact Us for a Free Consultation>

When you watch a commercial or look at a brochure for a cruise line, all you see are beautiful pictures of pristine conditions on the ship. An accident that leads to serious injury is the last thing that comes to mind. Truthfully, many potential dangers exist on cruises.

Most common injuries on cruise ships:

  • Slip and fall accidents. These are some of the most common injuries on cruise ships. People who are not used to the movement of a ship are at risk of falling while walking. Wet floors are also common on cruise ships, especially near pool areas or bars. Employees should be checking the floors for wet areas, and putting up signs to warn passengers of the danger.
  • Swimming accidents. If safety rules are not posted, or hazards exist that should have been taken care of by cruise ship staff, they could be liable for injuries in swimming areas. 
  • Assault by crew members or other passengers. Cruise ship owners and management have a duty to keep their passengers safe. If adequate security measures are not taken, the risk of violence may increase.
  • Injuries during excursions. Cruise line companies may be liable for passenger injuries on cruise-approved activities such as boating, scuba diving, or parasailing. 
  • Foodborne pathogens leading to illness. While motion sickness is common amongst those who travel on boats, it may be mistaken for food poisoning. Cruise lines are responsible for making sure the food served on-board is cooked properly and safe to eat.
